The Canadian ISBN Service System (CISS)


The Canadian ISBN Service System (CISS) has changed the appearance of its interface. Original functionality has been kept, while the main navigation has been moved to the left side of the screen.

The Canadian ISBN Service System (CISS) is a new free online service allowing publishers to manage their ISBN logbooks, to assign ISBNs in real time to future publications, and to modify information about publications as more become available.

We invite you to explore the website (you'll need to register first), learn more about CISS (pronounced "kiss") and understand the benefits of managing your own ISBN logbooks at any time, from anywhere.
